A coastal road infamous for flooding has reopened after a prolonged closure.

The often-flooded B1127 Potters Bridge connects Southwold to Wrentham in east Suffolk and initially closed at the start of November after flooding caused by Storm Ciarán, which followed on from heavy rain from Storm Babet a few weeks prior.

The Environment Agency had been granted a Magistrates' Court Warrant which enabled it to reinstate a drainage channel to stabilise water levels in the broad.

Work for this was completed on November 8, the Environment Agency said.

That was not the end of the flooding as the road was submerged and closed once again at the end of November. 

Southwold was hit by strong winds and high tides which left a number of roads in the area flooded. 

A spokeswoman for Suffolk Highways said that Potters Bridge reopened to drivers on Thursday.
